  • Creamy Butternut Squash Alla Vodka Pasta. Because Monday night is always better with a cozy pasta. I mean, right? This is just like classic alla vodka, but minus the tomato and plus roasted butternut squash. It's creamy, warming, and finished off with salty, crispy prosciutto bread crumbs. So. Good. And since it's Monday, that's all my brain has has to say...sharing the recipe on HBH today (linked in profile) AND making this over on my stories tonight too. Get at it. #eatingfortheinsta #f52grams #instayum #butternutsquash #pasta
  • It’s officially apple season and I’m so excited to be apart of @krogerco zero hunger | zero waste campaign. The Kroger family brands are making efforts across their stores to reduce waste and even something as simple as baking with “flawed” produce can help work towards a more sustainable future. Personally? I look for the flawed produce when creating new recipes. I love the character each “flaw” adds. You’d never know I used a few bruised apples to bake this apple cider pandowdy (an apple pie, but with a lot more of a “caramel” like sauce and a crust that is beyond perfect). It’s just as sweet and delicious as it looks. Find the recipe on HBH and make sure to shop @krogerco for seasonal produce. #sponsored #zerohungerzerowaste #apples
  • Instant Pot Broccoli Cheddar and Zucchini Soup. It’s cozy, but healthier than the average broccoli cheddar soup, easy, and so delicious. Hands down this one of my favorites and it's so incredibly easy to make with an instant pot OR slow cooker. Trust me, this will become a new fall go-to. Recipe below. Get at it. Perfect Sunday night...but really any chilly night works. PS. it's better than Panera's. It's true. Slow cooker and stove top directions are on HBH (linked in profile). ..

3 tablespoons butter
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
2 medium zucchini, chopped

1 cup whole milk or coconut milk
2-3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheeseSet Instant pot to sauté. Sautè together the butter, olive oil, and onion, carrots, zucchini, thyme, nutmeg, cayenne and a large pinch each of salt and pepper for 5 minutes. Pour in the broth. Add the broccoli and bay leaves. Cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.Use the quick release and release the steam. Remove the bay leaves. Blend the soup until chunky smooth (not totally puréed). Set the Instant pot to sauté. Stir in the milk and cheese, and cook 5 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with fresh thyme...and more cheddar. Eat and enjoy.

  • Baked (extra crispy) Sweet Potato Parmesan Tater Tots. Because it's Sunday and Sunday requires all the snacks. These are some of the best --> sweet potatoes, parmesan cheese, butter, fresh herbs, plenty of flaky sea salt and black pepper. The secret? Rolling the mashed sweet potatoes in bread crumbs for a crispy on the outside, soft on the inside tater tot. Finish with a drizzle of herb butter. SO GOOD. Perfect fall appetizer, side dish, game-day snack, it all works. Shared the recipe on HBH this week - linked in profile. #eeeeeats #f52grams #sweetpotatoes #fallfood
